“There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge”.
So began the first season of the classic television series “The Twilight Zone” which was created by the great Rod Serling back in 1959 and tomorrow in the wee hours of the morning, the SyFy Channel will begin their annual marathon of episodes from this amazing series. I’ve pointed out that I wasn’t sure how long they’ve been doing this but it does seem like a number of years and its just the perfect bit of content to showcase in our Pop Culture section as the year wraps up and we all look towards the New Year with hopes and aspirations. Though I don’t think this applies to anyone in our readership, if you never watched this series and are a fan of incredible Science Fiction, you need to sit down and enjoy at least some of this marathon which spans all of five seasons and then some. Over the years there have been a number of relaunches and redos which I’d actually like to see featured in a marathon of their own at some point but I digress. I began this particular Film & Television Feature back in 2020 when the best place one could be was inside based on the unpredictability of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since that time the world has gotten much “better” but we do still have some ways to go IMHO so I will keep on sharing this because I am a longtime Science Fiction fan and have been watching episodes of the series whenever I chance upon them. It all still holds up and creators today need to pay mind to it. Below you will find the full rundown of the marathon which runs from New Year’s Eve Day into January 2nd and since there is a lot to program on the DVR or Cloud-based service you might use I’ve decided to post this the morning before. Let’s review.
More than a month after the Seventh Season finale, the CW Entertainment Network has cancelled DC’s “Legends Of Tomorrow” series. Below you’ll find the tweet sent out by showrunner Keto Shimizu. I’ll add more later on.
Thank you to our fans; your love and passion for our strange band of misfits has made every break, every script, every daily, every cut, and every mix worth all the hard work. We see you, we love you, and you’ll always have a place on the Waverider. ❤️
Though I don’t remember when they actually started doing this, for the past few years the fine folks over at the SyFy network have been serving up a very loaded marathon of the Science Fiction classic series “The Twilight Zone”. Now I am talking about the original series that featured the great Rod Serling and not one of the many redos and relaunches that have surfaced over time. When I ran this feature in 2020 the goal was to keep all of you inside because it was just too unpredictable out there in terms of the virus. Since then we’ve come up with the vaccine and the world has set itself on two different sides while variants of the strain keep on coming. Over the past few weeks that latest one has caused a lot of grief so maybe staying inside and keeping to yourself once more isn’t a bad idea. This past year has found my making the website much more of a Metalized Geek Culture site and that leads me to listing the full marathon rundown for those interested once again. As a Science Fiction buff, I’ve long loved this series and plan on tuning in across the marathon for those very favorite episodes but I don’t think I am programming the DVR this time around. So now let’s get on down to business and learn which of the episodes are airing and when.
